Calisa Residences is a 80-year leasehold residential development located in Taman Mas Sepang, Puchong. Phase 1 which consists of Calisa “N” was launched in 2010, and Phase 2 Calisa “M” was launched in 2011. The development is expected to be fully completed by Q4 2014, and the developer is Masteron.
Calisa “M” is housed in one block with 16 storeys. There are total of four layout types available with either 2 or 3 rooms and 2 bathrooms across the board. Built-ups of the units would range from 775 sf up to 1,055 sf, and prices at launch started from RM221,760 at a reasonable RM280 psf. Units in Calisa “M” come with 1 free covered car park. There are only 13 units per level, therefore considered medium in terms of density.
Calisa Residences building is serviced by 2 lifts and 2 staircases. Levels 1 to 3 would serve as car parks, whereas the ground floor would be allocated for retail purposes. Floor 3A throughout 16 would be residential units. Security within Calisa Residences would be three-tiered, which includes card access at lift lobby as well as the car park, and a wireless intercom system to alert the guards should the situation arise. There are no recreational facilities in Calisa Residences.
Calisa Residences is located in the outskirts of Puchong. Amenities are not abundant as the immediate area is rather underdeveloped. There is a Giant Hypermarket located along the north, being less that two kilometers away. Carrefour Puchong Utama is also located relatively nearby, being four kilometers away. Taman Puchong Utama would be the nearest neighborhood with basic amenities such as access to banks and eateries. The nearest hospital is the Columbia Asia Hospital located in Bukit Rimau, as well as Columbia Asia Hospital Puchong. There are several schools nearby, including Da Vinci Putra Heights, SMK Puchong Perdana, and SMK Puchong Utama.
Calisa Residences is adequately accessible as it is located between Putrajaya, Puchong and Subang Jaya, three rather prominent townships. the North–South Expressway Central Link allows for easy access into Petaling Jaya. Towards the east there is the South Klang Valley Expressway for easy access towards Bangi and Kajang. Lebuhraya Damansara-Puchong (LDP) is also not far from the location, allowing for convenient access to the Damansara area. Calisa Residences is also close-by Golden Heights Puchong, Elite Apartment , and Taman Putra Prima .
Masteron has been very active in the development of Puchong, having completed projects in the area such as Koi Tropika, Koi Legian; as well as several other ongoing projects including Koi Kinrara and Sentral Vista. Masteron has received its share of flak from buyers for shoddy build quality, unscrupulous salespeople and questionable business etiquette. Other say that this is a low-cost residential development, and you get what you pay for, in terms of both construction quality and service.
The internet has been rife with comments with regard to the Calisa development. Some lament that the location itself is predominantly surrounded by industrial land with factories that employ predominantly foreigners as the bulk of their workforce. Certain buyers are also concerned upon signing the S&P; Agreement that the tenure is merely a 80 year leasehold expiring in 2096, not 99 years. And as of late, with the physical completion of Calisa “N”, buyers are complaining that the developer is unable to obtain the Certificate of Fitness; and that they are unable to do anything with the completed property and still paying interest to the bank all the while. Calisa Residences is also considered one of the best luxury condos in Puchong .
